Two Palestinians were reportedly injured by Israeli gunfire on Sunday in the Gaza Strip، according to local residents.

Israeli soldiers opened fire on two youths near the southern fence separating besieged Gaza from Israel، the residents said.

A Palestinian medical source said the two sustained moderate injuries and were rushed to the hospital for treatment.

There was no comment from the Israeli military on the report.

On last Friday، Palestinian demonstrators converged along the Gaza-Israel buffer zone to take part in ongoing rallies against Israel’s decades-long occupation، Anadolu Agency reports.

At least 16 unarmed Palestinian protesters were injured، including a volunteer and medic، Gaza Health Ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qidra said.

According to Gaza’s National Authority for Breaking the Siege (NABS)، Friday’s rally is being held under the slogan، “Compassion and solidarity”.

Demonstrators demand an end to Israel’s 12-year blockade of the Gaza Strip، which has gutted the coastal enclave’s economy and deprived its two million inhabitants of many basic commodities.
